In the article about the WhatsApp beta for Android 126.96.36.199 update, we announced that WhatsApp was releasing a new tweaked interface by introducing redesigned switches and floating action buttons. With the update, these interface elements finally follow Material Design 3 guidelines, enhancing the user experience. This is part of their project to redesign the app by aligning with the Material Design 3 rules, and there is something new regarding the interface today. After installing the latest WhatsApp beta for Android 188.8.131.52 update, which is available on the Google Play Store, some lucky beta testers may experiment with a different interface for alerts:
As you can see in this screenshot, it is really evident that these dialogs are different from each other. In the previous update, WhatsApp used a standard interface for the alert. Thanks to the latest update of WhatsApp beta, these alerts now have highly rounded edges that definitely align with the Material Design 3 guidelines. This design decision not only gives the user interface a new and modern appearance but also improves the overall user experience by making the different parts of the app look consistent with Material Design 3. It’s important to note that any alert within the app has been redesigned, not just the one shown in the attached screenshot.
This is another update that brings changes to the interface in a way that aligns with the Material Design 3 standards. We believe this is just the beginning, and WhatsApp will continue releasing updates to beta testers to establish a completely revamped interface for the entire application. As always, we will keep you updated on further changes with the next updates of the app.
Rounded alerts are available to some lucky beta testers that install the latest WhatsApp beta for Android update from the Google Play Store, and they are rolling out to even more people over the coming weeks.
